How Soon Can I Take A Hot Bath Or Jacuzzi After Giving Birth
Of course not: You can bathe the same day. I prefer a shower myself.
I had a cesarean birth 10 days ago. Getting fever only when I take hot bath else am doing fine. What is the cause? I don't have any pain.
I have an inflamed anus due to prostatitis. I been told to take a sitz bath. I now have jacuzzi that I sat in for 15 minutes. How hot can the water be? Is 101 too hot?
It's fine: Hot baths are a good idea for this problem. 101° is not typically too hot and permissible. Most people seem to shoot for baths around 102° to 104°. Anything beyond this becomes pretty uncomfortable. Let comfort direct what you do.See 1 more doctor answer
How soon after giving birth and getting stitches can I get in a hot tub I gave birth on October 4th 2015?
I would give it at: Least 10-14 days before immersion in water. Showers would be okay. Your vaginal wall and cervix are healing from the trauma of delivery, and would not do well with immersion that could introduce bacteria into your vulnerable uterus. Please take precautions and shower until you have recovered completely. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.
How long does it take for your pelvic area to heal after giving birth. My baby is now 11 months old and I am still having pelvic pain.
Variable: Most women heal by 6 weeks post-delivery, but having some lingering pain can happen occasionally. By 11 months, you should be completely healed and not be having pain at this point. If you had a cesarean delivery you may have some scar tissue. I would rec a sono and testing for other causes.11 mos of pain is long enough to create a chronic pain syndrome. Breastfeeding can cause changes=persis pai.See 1 more doctor answer
4 to 6 weeks: It depends on the extensiveness of the vaginal repair, but in general 4 to 6 weeks which encompasses the post partum period prior to the final check up exam.
Depends: If you are breast feeding, continue to take prenatal vitamins. You will need to take extra iodine up to 250 mg and extra vitamin d 5000 iu if there is not that much in your prenatal or the baby will be deficient in both of them. If you are not breast feeding, take a good quality multivitamin.See 2 more doctor answers
Yes: Use over the counter Plan B or zne t choice if intercourse was within 72 hours to decrease the risk of unplanned pregnancy.
Breast feeding?: Depends alot on whether you breast feed or not. Nursing mothers may not start until they stop nursing, even up to more than a year. If you do not breast feed, periods can start as soon as the first month or two after delivery.
Yes: If you need to be off then you need to start your maternity leave! It all depends on how much time you have off. Ideally it would be wonderful if all moms could take maternity leave starting a week before delivery and then p to 3-4 months afterwards. For many it is a financial issue. If you don't have to have the income then take the time off. Take care of yourself!
After giving birth I was prescribed percocet, how long does it take to get out of your system when breastfeeding. How far back does a oral test go?
12 hrs approx: At 3-4 hours the drug is considered 1/2 gone. At 12 hours it's going to be almost all the way gone. It's so very common for women to have a cesarean section or perineal repair following delivery that requires a narcotic to help with pain. In terms of how long blood test will be positive for narcotic, it's around 36-48 hours. Hope that helps.See 1 more doctor answer
Return to "normal"?: The opening of the cervix (cervical os) that dilates during birth closes over 2 to 6 weeks. If this is a first birth, then the cervical size and shape does not ever quite return to the never pregnant configuration.
6 weeks: After cesarean section, most recommend a postpartum healing time of 6 week's. This is in order to allow the uterus to heal and reduce risk of infection. Additionally, no direct abdominal pressure should be placed on the abdominal area for the first 6 weeks. Some women feel comfortable triing sex at 4 weeks post delivery. In this case, use a condom for bc as well as to reduce infection.
Am currently pregnant and wanted to know how long does it take to clean out my system of THC before giving birth?
6-8 weeks: It takes about 6-8 weeks for all thc to completely depart the system. Do not try any of the cleansing products out there because they are not safe for the pregnancy. Stop using thc because it can harm your baby. Thc passes to the baby through the placenta and into the breast milk. If you need help stopping thc, talk to your doctor.
